Cognex has announced that its OCRMax technology on its machine vision systems, now includes an automatic tuning capability. This feature makes complex OCR applications simple for even the novice user. It is available on Cognex's In-Sight Explorer 4.8 and VisionPro 8.1 software releases.

Clicking the auto-tune button will auto-adjust the tool to optimal parameters. This will prevent misreads, while providing easy font management for optical character recognition and verification applications such as decoding human-readable date or lot codes or serial numbers.

“Decoding both human-readable text and compact Data Matrix codes are critical components of our customers’ supply chain traceability initiatives,” says Herbert Lade, vice president and business unit manager, Vision Systems.
